Event description

Description

Mental illness looms large in Shakespeare’s plays, from King Lear’s torment and Macbeth’s visions to Hamlet, the playwright’s most fully developed study of a mind in turmoil. On the 400th anniversary of his death – and in partnership with the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival's tenth year programme – literary critic Stuart Kelly is joined by a panel of experts to discuss the playwright’s fascination with the subject, and how his observations stand up four centuries later. With psychotherapist and former literary editor Peter Kravitz, Joyce McMillan, respected theatre critic of the Scotsman (whose reviews are collected in her new book Theatre in Scotland - A Field of Dreams); and Prof Mark Robson of the University of Dundee.

In partnership with the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival
